Elton John made history once again by completing an EGOT with tonight’s Emmy win for Elton John Live: Farewell From Dodger Stadium. He is the 19th person to accomplish the achievement with all of the wins coming in a competitive situation. The win means that he also joins Tim Rice, his co-writer on The Lion King, in the prestigious club. The three-hour epic concert was John’s final concert in North America. There were a trio…"Elton John Completes EGOT With Emmy Win For Dodger Stadium Farewell"

STILL: A Michael J. Fox Movie is shortlisted for Best Documentary Feature at the Oscars but won big at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards. This begs the question of whether an Oscar is next for the STILL team. The film won Outstanding Documentary or Nonfiction Special in addition to awards for directing (Davis Guggenheim), editing (Michael Harte), and music composition (John Powell). What makes this year really interesting is the Television Academy delaying the Emmy…"STILL: A Michael J. Fox Movie Wins Emmy, Is Oscar Next?"

In what is extremely disappointing news, a not-funny transphobic Netflix comedy special was nominated for the 74th Emmy Awards. Let me repeat: Emmy voters watched Dave Chappelle: The Closer and decided that Dave Chappelle delivered one of the best specials of the year. If you need a reminder, Chappelle is once again transphobic and also delves into antisemitic territory. And once again, voters watched this and decided it is worth of an Emmy. The Academy…"Emmy Voters Nominate Transphobic Comedy Special"

Cedric the Entertainer is hosting tonight’s ceremony, which is being held outside because of the Delta variant concerns. People will win or lose but at the end of the day, television audiences win because of the wealth of content available to watch.

Hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, the 72nd Emmy Awards are taking place during the Covid-19 pandemic with multiple cameras cutting to the winners. Solzy at the Movies will be presenting live updates of the 72nd Emmy Awards this evening. Right off the bat, I love the fake laughter mixed in with footage from earlier years. Kimmel does ask the important question of why are we doing this during a pandemic. He also reminds us of what…"72nd Emmy Awards – Live Updates"
The 71st Emmy Awards–honoring the best television in comedy, drama, variety, and movies–are taking place tonight on FOX, airing live 8-11 PM ET/5-8 PM PT. The Emmy’s are following in Oscar’s footsteps this year by going without a host. I’m hope this doesn’t become the future as it will put many comedians out of a job. There’s a shocker right out of the gate! An animated Homer Simpson is hosting the show…or so we thought. …"71st Emmy Awards Winners: Live Updates"
When the 71st Emmy Award nominations were announced, a number of Oscar-nominated documentaries received several nominations. While I am excited for some of the Emmy nominations this year, I remain disappointed in the continued documentary overlap between the Oscars and Emmys. This is also one of those areas in which I find myself in high agreement with Steven Spielberg. The director has certainly let his feelings be widely known when it comes to Netflix. This is…"Emmy Awards Have A Documentary Problem"
